As of 12:48 PM ET Joe Liebermanâ€™s website remains down.
The current error message on the website reads. UPDATE (2:18 ET): The message is gone and the standard “Under Construction” page is back. There’s a screenshot of the message though.
STATEMENT FROM SEAN SMITH: “For the past 24 hours the Friends for Joe Lieberman’s website and email has been totally disrupted and disabled, we believe that this is the result of a coordinated attack by our political opponents. The campaign has notified the US Attorney and the Connecticut Chief State’s Attorney and the campaign will be filing a formal complaint reflecting our concerns. The campaign has also notified the State Attorney General Dick Blumenthal for his review.”
“We call on Ned Lamont to make an unqualified statement denouncing this kind of dirty campaign trick and to demand whoever is responsible to cease and desist immediately. Any attempt to suppress voter participation and undermine the voting process on Election Day is deplorable and has no place in our democracy.”
Apparently the Lieberman campaign is pushing a story that we have coordinated an attack against their website. Not a chance. Hereâ€™s the unqualified statement Sean Smith has called for.
If Senator Liebermanâ€™s website was indeed hacked, we had absolutely no part in it, denounce the action, and urge whoever is responsible cease and desist immediately. It is our sincerest wish that everyone planning to vote for Ned Lamont or Joe Lieberman does so today.

Ned Lamont for U.S. Senate
